New York’s Christmas markets have opened their stands!
The immense Grand Central Terminal is home to a magnificent hall used for all sorts of expositions. This space, Vanderbilt Hall, was named after the railroad magnate. Here, 76 vendors will be offering crafts for the holidays until December 24th. For those who get chilly, there’s also the Chelsea Market, which includes a temporary section transformed into an artist’s flea market! Take the 10th avenue entrance under the High Line, which, by the way, is open even in winter, before sundown! If outdoor shopping doesn’t daunt you, you could visit the holiday markets in Columbus Circle or Union Square. The Holiday Shops at Bryant Park have a special advantage over these other outdoor markets – there’s a skating rink! And, unlike the other two markets, this one is open until the beginning of January. Try these two articles to learn more about these ephemeral jewels of New York:
